Happy Wishes

Hello and welcome to part 5 of this week’s Sale-A-Bration spotlight on stamp sets! Today I created two quick and easy cards with the Happy Wishes stamp set! You can earn this free with a qualifying $100.00 order and if you are looking for a stamp set with lots of saying, this is it! But don’t delay, Sale-A-Bration ends tomorrow, Saturday March 31st!

Happy Day card:

The card base is Berry Burst cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, and the base layer is Berry Burst Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”.

From the Myths & Magic 6” x 6” Glimmer Paper, cut at piece of the iridescent paper 2” x 5 ¼” and punch the end out with the Banner Triple Punch.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the “happy” stamp in Basic Gray Archival ink, color the leaves with Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker, and the flowers are colored in Blushing Bride, Berry Burst, and Rich Razzleberry inks. I used the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker but used a Blender Pen with the Berry Burst and Rich Razzleberry inks since the markers were too dark for me. The “day” sentiment was stamped in Berry Burst ink. This is then cut out with the 2nd largest Lots of Labels Thinlits and I used some Snail on the back to adhere some Silver Metallic Thread.

To put this card together, I adhered the glimmer paper with Fast Fuse to the Foil DSP layer, adhered that to the card base, and adhered the sentiment in the middle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From the Myths & Magic 6” x 6” Glimmer Paper, cut at piece of the turquoise paper 2” x 5 ¼” and punch the end out with the Banner Triple Punch.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the “best” in Basic Gray Archival ink, color the leaves with Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker and color the flowers with a Blender Pen and Tempting Turquoise and Soft Sky inks. The “wishes” sentiment is stamped in Tempting Turquoise ink. This is then cut out with the 3rd largest Lots of Labels Thinlits and I used some Snail on the back to adhere some Silver Metallic Thread.

To put this card together, I adhered the glimmer paper with Fast Fuse to the Foil DSP layer, adhered that to the card base, and adhered the sentiment in the middle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

One of a Kind

Hello and welcome to another card created with the Myths & Magic Suite this week! If you have not seen the Myths & Magic Designer Series Paper, you really need to check it out! Even if you do not have the coordinating stamp set and framelit dies, you can easily create an awesome card with just the DSP, as it is embossed with glitter somewhere in the scenery on one of the sides and you can easily fussy cut an image out. Today’s card was inspired by a card I made last year using the Seaside Shore stamp set and the (now retired) By the Shore DSP. Since I had an idea in mind, this was so simple and easy to make!

The card base is in Thick Whisper White card stock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, and the base layer is from the Myths & Magic Specialty DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”.

First, start with the largest Layering Circles Framelits and cut out the DSP and a Window Sheet (if you find your Window Sheet has static, rubbing it with a dryer sheet will take care of this!). Next, use the largest and the 2nd largest Layering Circles Framelits and the label framelit from the Magical Framelits Dies on a piece of light green Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper. The seahorses are stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock in Memento Ink, colored with the Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers, and then cut out with the coordinating framelit. The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock with Lemon Lime Twist ink and Old Olive ink sponged along the outskirts with a Sponge Dauber and then cut out with the coordinating framelit die.

To put the card together, adhere the base layer to the card stock, adhere the circle DSP on top, glue the glimmer circle to the window sheet, then adhere with Foam Adhesive strips. You may have to play around with it to get the foam strip not to show so much. The glimmer banner piece is cut in half and adhered to the back of the sentiment so it is poking out on the top and bottom, then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the seahorses are adhered with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Clear Epoxy Shapes to make it look like water droplets. This could easily be turned into a shaker card by adding some sequins!

A peacock with some bling!

Today’s card is another creation using the super cute Beautiful Peacock stamp set from the Sale-A Bration catalog. It’s bright, cheerful, and has some bling!

The card base is in Bermuda Bay card stock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, and the base layer is in Whisper White card stock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”.  I used both of the “feather” stamps on the base layer, first stamping the longer image in Daffodil Delight ink and then stamped the shorter image in Bermuda Bay ink. Using Smokey Slate ink, randomly stamp the two smaller “star like” images. On a piece of Whisper White card stock, stamp the peacock’s body in Smokey Slate ink, then use Sponge Daubers to ink the fan/feather image in Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay inks. The image is cut out using the 4th largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits and then adhere some Silver Metallic Thread on the back with Snail and use Stampin’ Dimensionals so this will “pop” on top of the base layer. After adhering the base layer to the card base, I felt like it still needed some bling, so I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Amazing You

Today’s card is continuing with the Amazing You stamp set with a little bling! This is really a quick and simple card that the sentiment can be used for any celebrating occasion.

The card base is in Fresh Fig card stock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, and the base layer is in Whisper White card stock, cut at 3 ¾” x 4 ¾”.

Keeping with the simplicity of this card, stamp the flower image from the Amazing You stamp set in Fresh Fig ink around the edges of the card base and then starting in the top right-hand corner of the base layer, going counter-clockwise. Still using the Fresh Fig ink, stamp the words “you” and “are simply” on the base layer and after this is dry, heat emboss “amazing” in Silver Embossing Powder. Don’t forget to use your embossing buddy first!

To give this card some bling, I used Clear Faceted Gems for the middle of the flower and then lightly went over the flower petals with Wink of Stella. Here’s a close up:

Adhere the base layer with Fast Fuse or your favorite strong adhesive, Snail may not be strong enough due to heat embossing and the embellishments. This is such a striking card and the color can easily be changed to what you easily have on hand. What do you think?
